I have to read Hemingway and Dickens between F5-ing this thread just to keep my IQ from seeking hibernation.

But that won't stop me from coming back.

Sooo anyone else think the league will just not say anything before 5 tomorrow, and let the contract be approved in that manner?

I was thinking the same thing so Buttman can do like the others saying it's under investigation until further notice.. Lol
The NHL needs change big time, if not for anything this contract and offseason has made the Buttman Daily incorporated look real bad!

i thought this over and i think (or at least i thought this morning, before i read TG and marek saying it would be done today) the league may end up doing this. by being intentionally vague, it still holds the hammer on future deals, and gets to create confusion about where the line may be drawn - executives with less brio than lamoriello (or executives with less prodding from ownership) may back down from more ambitious contracts for fear of league reprisal.


Yes I agree with this. This is the only way the league will keep any sort of "upper hand" in this and is not seen as backing down.

so they will let it ride till tomorrow at 5pm and say the deal is under investigation. it will scare the sh!t out of fans but technically the contract will be approved pending investigation which will never happen.

well they did say they told the devils last night no? maybe they agreed to keep it quiet till tomorrow so LL can talk to the teams for trades. I'm not sure if Bettman can be that nice but we can dream.

Oh great, right when I'm at a movie this whole thing will finally explode. Although I'm half hoping TG and Chesnokov are wrong and we hear nothing today since that makes a rejection more likely whereas an acceptance would almost certainly constitute running out the clock past 5 PM tomorrow.

Nobody reported that the Devils were told. It was only said that the NHL had looked at the contract all day yesterday and came to a decision, which ostensibly they would tell the world about today.

LOL, LOL, LOL... I spent my whole day waiting for the decision, being sure the deadline was TODAY at 5 pm (on Friday TG said it was day #1)... I was counting minutes when I read TG's last blog entry once again just to find out it's TOMORROw. :doh1: :doh1: :doh1: Kill me now... :argh:
